Time to shine
For women in Arab countries, just stepping onto the playing field can be a massive
achievement. In a male-dominated sporting landscape, largely due to tradition and culture.
Support networks for aspiring young female athletes are often limited or none existent.
This short film documents Fatma Al-Nabhani's inspiring journey becoming the Arab world’s
only female professional tennis player. Proving to other young Arab women that with passion and
determination, no goal is out of reach. The film was launched in Dubai as part of
celebrations marking International Women’s Day.
